Police are examining possible links to an early morning ram raid at Dora Creek.

Three would-be thieves have incurred thousands of dollars worth of damage on a Dora Creek take away shop during the raid early this morning.

A Mitsubishi Triton Ute which was reported stolen from Pendlebury Road at Cardiff on the weekend was driven through the front of the Eats At The Creek shop on Wamsley Street at about 3:30 this morning.

The Ute’s three occupants attempted to steal an ATM , but were unsuccessful.

Senior Constable Tony Tamplin says the three people involved in the theft of an ATM following a ram raid on the Paxton Bowling Club last week remain at large.
